Strengthening Constitutional Self-Government

No Left Turns

Y’all come

I’ll be speaking at Mercer University in Macon at 4:30 p.m. today. (At the moment, the Mercer website seems to be down, but, trust me, the link has worked in the past.) I’ll speaking on Kant on federations, offering the first and roughest version of a paper that will eventually make its way into a book edited by these folks.

So far as I know, the lecture is open to the public.

Update: Good hosts, good audience, good conversation, good food. If this guy (or his friend in the political science department who doesn’t have a personal site) invites you to give a talk in Macon, accept with alacrity.

Given his academic pedigree, "this guy" looks like a Jake Howland/Ronna Burger student. Yes?

That would be correct. One of his partners in crime is Will Jordan, whose pedigree runs back to John Danford and company at Loyola Chicago and the good people at Washington and Lee. Another is Edward Thomas, who studied with some good people at Emory in philosophy and, before that, with some other good people at Claremont-McKenna.

One of the things we talked about was making Mercer part of the Georgia cocktail circuit, something that will perhaps initially be facilitated by the fact that this fellow’s son is currently the ISI student rep on campus.

Joe, you’re quite right: given their pedigrees, it must be a fine place. I’ll come if invited!
